Full tank shot few days ago and then yesterday added a frag rack and prime HD I had laying around. Just need to do something to block some light spilling everywhere for Algee. 49452FA5-5F8E-4F22-8F8D-D22929340245.jpeg C7C4AC72-4F25-4833-9425-29A9A39E6D51.jpeg
How do you keep the sump so clean? I know it’s a new tank but mine have always gotten pretty dirty pretty fast.

Lol yea. I have a manifold on the tank and when I ran it I made one return directly in we’re the over flow is to constantly have a stream from the back. Then from the Aqua UV return I added some pipe with small holes facing the floor of the sump to keep everything suspended, also return from refugium will create some turbulence. I put a small wave pump in there that I have laying around it’s stuck on one speed but main reason I put that is because I just added frag rack so will be in there for coral

That’s some 4d chess in your sump maintenance design.

is that the sk3000? How has it been for you? Considering the 5000 as im tired of dealing with filter socks every 3 days. Is there an aftermarket roll (cheaper) available or just factor support? I believe I’ve seen someone selling diy rolls on eBay for other rollers.

You'll like the Tident.
